Macht #3 – Hoffnung

Johanna Roggan/the guts company

Performance Tanz 2021/22

Premiere

“MACHT#3” analyzes the principle of hope and makes hope.

In view of the everyday nature of the state of crisis, charged political rhetoric, and deep social rifts, the guts company searches in “Macht #3-Hoffnung” for collective utopias of being connected, individual hopes, and shared departures. What does it take to still have “a spark of hope” and how can we hope together? Five performers explore different aggregate states of hope, always in search of connectedness and resonance-with the space, the audience and their own actions.

The production Macht#3-Hoffnung is flanked by the outreach project “Derivatives of Hope”. Three artists – the visual artist Karin Armbruster, the video artist and photographer Diethild Meier and the dance journalist Alexandra Hennig – accompany the production process and illuminate the thematic field of “power and hope” from their own perspective and with their artistic means. Drawings, paintings, videos, photos and text contributions are created, which are continuously presented via social media as well as in a brochure and an exhibition framing the performances.
